Removed the interior to insulate the floors and protect them for another 50 years

You are a lucky guy to have floor pans that nice. You will like the sound and heat insulation, it made a world if difference in my last project.

Excellent. Who's insulation did you use?
Floors look GOOD. I Ospho'd mine for the surface rust, then painted, then insulation when I install the interior.

Did you guys scrape off the seam sealer from the factory? I cant see it sticking any other way. I used Fat Mat only on the divider. I may use that on the floors or the stuff from Lowes is what the restoration shop uses. I'm going to use the snot first.

Got it all prepped for sanding today. Had to use a heat gun to remove some insulation that I added at one time

Had this part powder coated clear. Well lets just say it needs to be glass beaded again and stay natural

Going back in the shop on March 27th for some touch ups and something's I can't handle on my own. And then the engine goes back in. Can't wait!

Brake lines, brake distribution block, brake booster and master cylinder installed. Touch ups in engine compartment done. Waiting on what the water leaking around back window shows now. Estimate on final quarter panel rust spot and interior paint are in. Going to pull harness and have it restored next.

So I picked up the car today after getting some work done. They replaced the rear seal for the rear window. They didn't check to see if it leaks. Well it leaks from both corners inside the car and in the trunk. Any suggestions?

A few guesses on my part without seeing the car:
New seal?
Did they use the correct sealant, in sufficient quantity & application?
What is the condition of the metal surrounding the window? Any rust issues?
To be absolutely sure, I'd want to take it all apart, inspect the metal condition. If OK, then another new seal and proper sealing- with a generous amount of sealant. (Excess sealant that may ooze out can be removed/cleaned after installation.) Wait 24 hrs and check for leaks.
That's the way I did it when replacing the windshield in my CS.
